Malaysia’s premier education institution, Asia Pacific University of Technology and Innovation (APU) announced the establishment of an Internet of Things (IoT) Center of Excellence to develop, facilitate and promote IoT education by leveraging IBM Watson IoT platform.
APU will develop, facilitate and promote IoT education though its state-of-the-art cloud-based IoT infrastructure used by students, researchers and faculty members. APU faculty and students will be able to develop IoT apps, products and services using the IBM Watson IoT Platform, which securely connects devices to applications using cloud-based services and rich analytics.
IBM will also provide relevant IoT resources, training the trainers and assistance in building a workforce with high-demand IoT skills. This will also equip APU with current expertise and knowledge in line with the latest IT industry requirements, as well as prepare students to meet future industry requirements.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is predicted to have an economic impact of more than $11 trillion by 2025. IBM, a global innovation leader in Internet of Things, is working to accelerate the development of cognitive IoT solutions and services in order to help clients and partners make sense of the growing volume and variety of data in a physical world that is rapidly becoming digitized.
“IBM Watson IoT platform will provide students at APU the skills to develop applications which could make use of the data gathered from sensors and devices. And in turn, the ability to make sense of the overwhelming amount of data created from the proliferation of these IoTs will encourage and lead to the culture of innovation,” said Chong Chye Neo, Managing Director, IBM Malaysia.
